Impacting INDIVIDUALS
Influencing systems

Characterised by renewed hope, developed confidence and improved skills, the programmes that we offer give people the chance to grow, expand their horizons, and become agents of change in their own community. We focus on empowering and enhancing the lives of those people most isolated and vulnerable, building their confidence and helping them to learn new skills, so that they may fully live their lives and become a part of their community.

This is our celebration of 21 years of serving our community.

On our 21st birthday, we want to celebrate the impact LifeLine Projects has had; on people’s lives, on our local community, and on our national systems.

What We Do

SW!TCH draws on LifeLine’s 15 years’ experience of working with young people through our award-winning VIP Mentoring scheme. Today’s SW!TCH programmes bring solutions to young people that are in danger of becoming involved in serious youth violence or have poor mental health.

Little Learners Nursery and Pre-School

Located in Elm Park and Ilford, our nurseries and pre-schools provide a warm and stimulating environment, with fun and engaging activities that help children to learn and grow.And with our innovative Tapestry app, you can see photos and updates about your child’s activities each day.

Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham

Part of the national Healthwatch network, Healthwatch Barking and Dagenham acts as a champion for people in their local community who use health and care services. Their role is to listen to what people have to say about their local services, and share this feedback with the providers of services so they can improve and better meet the needs of the community.

Champions Support Network

We know that raising and caring for a young person can be really challenging. That’s why we training local parents and carers as mentors to support you and help you to access the services you need.

Who We Are

LifeLine Projects was founded in 2000 by a group of volunteers in East London who saw a need in their local community. Realising that they could be part of the solution, they began working with isolated and marginalised women. Since then, we’ve grown from a small organisation with just two part-time members of staff, to one of the larger community-based social enterprises in the capital. Over the years, we’ve worked with numerous organisations to deliver many public-sector-funded programmes, and we’ve received several awards recognising the fruits of our programmes and been short-listed for many more.
